A lot of games make me physically sick. I first discovered it when I was very young, when Golden Eye got really popular, and upon spending half an hour playing it with friends I promptly threw up.
After doing some research online, it seems that the issue is a form of motion sickness. It's odd, because I don't get sea sick, plane sick, or sick as a result of any other form of actual motion - it's just certain games that trigger it.
At first, it just seemed to be first person games that did it (all of them), but I'm starting to find that there are now quite a few 3rd person games that do it too. It's something to do with camera movement. A good example is that I can play Witcher 1 without any issues at all (using the isometric camera), but a few minutes of Witcher 2 had my head spinning. Another good example is Dragon Age; when playing it from the zoomed out "tacical view" I can play for days on end without issue, but when I zoom the camera in to "exploration" perspective, it all goes wrong.
The result is, I keep wasting money on games that I end up not being able to play for more than 10 minutes at a time. I also have to endure listening to my friends talking about awesome games that I can't play.
So, my two questions:
1. Is there a "cure"? I love gaming, and don't want this to limit my gaming experiences any more than it already has. I'd be willing to do pretty much anything if it actually works.
2. Does anyone else here suffer from the same issue? If so, do you happen to have a list of games that you can play without getting sick?
Thanks in advance.
